The seventh and final season of Ava DuVernay’s Queen Sugar will be the series’ final season.
Prepare for a satisfying conclusion.
On November 10th,
Queen Sugar will end after season seven in 2022, according to E! News.
This information arrives just in time for the beloved drama’s season six finale, which airs tonight, Nov.
The series, produced by Ava DuVernay and broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network, premiered in 2016 and was praised for portraying a Black family in the Deep South.
For those unfamiliar with the series, Queen Sugar follows three siblings who inherit an 800-acre sugarcane farm in Louisiana from their recently deceased father.
“To write and produce seven seasons of a modern drama centered on a Black family is a radical act in our industry and a triumph that has far exceeded every hope I held,” DuVernay said in a statement.
Now I’m convinced that the story, which began with Oprah’s (Winfrey’s) suggestion, is ready for its sunset as a fully realized dream.”
Season six of Queen Sugar began with Ralph (Kofi Siriboe) and Darla (Bianca Lawson) expecting their first child and Nova (Rutina Wesley) fighting political corruption.
Meanwhile, Charley (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) was faced with difficult life choices.
Everything was just another day in the life of the Bordelon family.
We’re still undecided about saying goodbye to the Bordelons.
“The feeling and heart that you feel in this series is about connection,” Oprah explained in a 2016 interview with E! News.
And it’s about values that everyone watching shares or has shared in their families at some point.”
Don’t miss the season six finale, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
16 at 8 p.m. on OWN, and the first five seasons of Queen Sugar are available on Hulu.
